The captain spoke ahead of Saturday's clash with Millwall.
ON MIDWEEK DEFEAT
“We started the game quite well, it’s been the case in most games this season. We are doing well, then the other team gets on top and we can’t wrestle back the initiative.
“It’s football, you know? It happens to all teams. You go through good and bad.
“Last season everything seemed to go for us, but this year we’re getting no luck at all. But you just have to keep on working hard, stick together, follow the process and results will turn for us.”
HOW TO IMPROVE
“I think for now, we need to really grind things out. When the other side gets on top, we need to get stuck in and realise that, stem the tide, manage the game better.
“There’s no point singling anyone out, it’s nobody’s fault individually. We must stick together as a team.
“We aren’t miles off, despite the way things look. I think if we stick together and ride things out, we’re only going to get better.”
STYLE OF PLAY
“Confidence is key. We need to be brave.
“Last season was easy to play. There was no risk, you just get it forward as soon as possible and try and play from there.
“But we’re trying to play more this season, so there’s a lot more risk/reward in that. We’ve looked very good in games doing it, but the idea is to mix things up more, but without the likes of Carlton (Morris) up front we are missing a target I suppose.
“It’s a process, like I say. But we all believe in the style of play and we know we’ll get it right.”
“They’re a tough team to play against, they always are. They’re strong, direct and we know exactly what to expect from them, there’s no excuse there.
“If we can get a big win tomorrow it’ll lift the group and we can head into the international break with renewed confidence.
“That’s the focus for us, getting that win, no matter how we do it. I’m not looking beyond that.”
